Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Pus cells of 50 for hpf is abnormal and is suggestive of urinary tract infection as the cause of fever in your kid.

Your kid requires further investigations including a urine culture.

She should be started on antibiotics as prescribed by your doctor and if there is no response he will change the antibiotic depending on urine culture and sensitivity report.

Hope this helps.
Take care
